Late Paychecks for Adjuncts
Inform your union chapter chair if you do not receive your pay on time.
Adjuncts have a right to be paid on time. But failure to pay adjunct faculty on time at the start of a semester has often been a problem at CUNY colleges. CUNY has instructed college administrations to make “every effort…to ensure that adjunct faculty are paid on time,” and has circulated a list of “best practices” to ensure timely adjunct paychecks. The list includes a measure that had been urged by the PSC: designating a specific staff member to track adjunct appointments “before and during the beginning of a semester.” Read more in this May 2014 Clarion article.
